The William White Collection represents an example of an interesting collection which awaits proper processing when funding is available. (The Archive contains several thousand scanned images kindly lent by Old China Hands.) The White Collection consists of digital scans of several hundred pictures in four photo albums. These photographs were taken in Shanghai in the 1920s and 30s by William White’s father, Robert White, an amateur photographer and, most interestingly, a senior officer in the Shanghai Municipal Police. Many of the photographs are therefore quite unique, covering political events, mass movements, police at work, and the like. An early item is the recruiting advertisement published in England which led Mr. White, Sr. to apply for a position with the police force.
